Food & Drink Holiday Packages For Africa & The Indian Ocean

South Africa is rightly known for its cuisine, a fusion cuisine that celebrates their cultural heritage, with uniquely South African know-how and ingredients. From the casual brasseries, cafés and diners to some of the best fine dining establishments to be found, the standards are consistently high.

There are myriad indigenous ingredients and delicacies such as Ostrich steaks, Springbok Loin, Karoo Lamb, Biltong (dried, salted meat), Bobotie (a South African version of Shepherd's pie) and boerewors (hand-made farm sausages, grilled on an open flame).

For the more daring diner, South Africa offers culinary challenges ranging from crocodile sirloins to fried caterpillars to sheep heads - all three are reputed to be delicious! Traditional African food is colourful, interesting, and tastes terrific. A well-prepared local meal can be a highlight of your trip to South Africa.

The wine routes of South Africa are predominantly found in the Western Cape where the majority of the country’s wine production takes place. This 350-year-old wine-making tradition encompasses a multitude of wine routes to explore (currently 17), along with brandy routes, wine biodiversity routes, and the world’s longest wine route.

We can offer private and scheduled tours to suit all tastes and interests, catering not only for the wine connoisseur but also for the wine lover who wants to spend a day enjoying good wine, good food, good company and wonderful scenery.

Whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a connoisseur, you’ll find the accessible estates and fine wine make for an enjoyable experience.

The cuisine in on the Indian Ocean Islands of Mauritius and the Seychelles is broadly in line with the origins of their peoples. This means Indian, Chinese, Creole and European cuisine resulting in a combination of flavours that has evolved through its different cultural heritages and cooking traditions. And of course the seafood is as good as you will find anywhere!
